Next Generation Recoil rigs are designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is approximately where the lens meets the camera body. In a Recoil rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. This requires focus, monitoring and camera controls to be relocated forward, creating a lighter and shorter rig.
The C100 II Rig
The shoulder-mounted C100 Mark II EVF Recoil includes our VCT Pro baseplate and the C100 Mark II Helmet. The Helmet allows for a secure connection between the camera body and the Canon top handle. It also gives you a 15mm rod port for the Axis Mini and multiple ¼ 20 screw holes for mounting accessories. Our Grip Relocator positions camera control at a comfortable, convenient handgrip.
